Sorry I meant print my photos. I can do it at Walmart but I find the quality of the prints to be poor. Wondered if there was somewhere else to get good high quality pics? Perhaps Blacks.. just not sure whats out there. I love taking and editing photos just doesn't seem write to then print them at Walmart.

I use Costco. They print a little dark, even without color corrections (so just adjust for that), but their price/quality ratio is great.
12x18 prints are only $3.50, or $2 on sale.
I'd be paying $30+ anywhere else for a 12x18

Since you don't care too much about quality, try Posterjack.ca if you want large prints.

I've recently found Shoppers Drug Mart of all places to produce excellent quality prints. They use Fuji CrystalArchive paper. I like the colour correction better than Kodak Gallery, and the general image quality is miles better than Walmart. (I've no Costco where I live so can't compare.)
4x6 photos are not 4x6. They are 4x5.84375. So don't try placing them in a clip frame because they won't be the right size.
8x10 photos often arrive at the store bent, though they're good about reprinting damaged photos. It would be nice if they took greater care in their handling though.
